Currently reading Black Card by @chrislterry. This book is a beautifully written autobiographical look into life as a mixed race punk rock 90s teen heading into his 20s. Terry’s writing is nuanced, styled, and melodic. It is open and vulnerable and funny, and illuminates ways well-intended white people like myself can exacerbate the isolation of marginalized groups. This piece of literature has already opened my eyes to a perspective I need much more of. I love a good book with an interesting story, 90s punk AND rap references, that also helps educate me to be more aware. I highly recommend this read.
